Walsall to Visit Poland For Pre-Season Training Camp

Walsall FC have confirmed that Darrell Clarke's first-team squad will head out to Poland for a pre-season training camp ahead of the 2019/20 Sky Bet League Two campaign.
The Saddlers will fly out to Poland on Sunday, 14th July and return in time to face Notts County at Meadow Lane on Saturday, 20th July.

The former Salisbury City and Bristol Rovers boss will use the trip for team bonding and look to arrange a behind-closed-doors fixture with a Polish I Liga side as part of our preparations.

Speaking via the club's official website, recently-appointed manager Darrell Clarke, welcomed the opportunity to take his soon-to-be rebuilt team to Poland, he said; "It’ll be good to bond what will be a relatively new squad together. I appreciate we’ve been given the opportunity to get away as it mixes the pre-season programme up.

"We report back for pre-season training on 24th June so it’s going to be a busy six-week period and it’s nice to have a change of scenery away from the training ground. It’s going to be a very tough pre-season for the boys.

"It’ll be good for them to spend an intense period of time together out in Poland to build team spirit and bond the group."
